The weekend is here and as we head into summer in early June, here are some ways to enjoy the weekend.

Dunleath Porchfest

The Dunleath Historic Neighborhood will turn its porches into stages when it presents Dunleath Porchfest from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.

The event will feature 43 performances throughout the neighborhood, culminating in a finale at 4 p.m. in Sternberger Park.

The Dunleath Neighborhood is near downtown Greensboro just off Summit Avenue, Yanceyville Street and Bessemer Avenue.

Check out who’s performing, where and when using the online interactive map at Dunleath.org.

Parking is available at Swann Middle School (811 Cyprus St.) and at the Women’s Resource Center (628 Summit Ave.).

The Good Human Foundation will collect canned goods for the Triad Health Project food pantry.

While masks are no longer required outdoors, guests are encouraged to wear them when in groups.

Music of the Rolling Stones

The Greensboro Symphony and conductor Brent Havens perform “Windborne’s The Music Of The Rolling Stones: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards 1969” tonight at the White Oak Amphitheatre in the Greensboro Coliseum complex.

In the 8 p.m. concert, the Greensboro Symphony will pay tribute to the iconic group with vocalist Mick Adams backed by a full rock band.

The concert will be held rain or shine. Tickets are $35 for reserved seats and $25 for general admission on the lawn.

The family-friendly concert at 7 p.m. will feature country music artists Russ Varnell and His Too Country Band and Michael Cosner and The Fugitives.

As the title suggests, “Stomp the Stigma,” aims to end feelings associated with mental illness.

Ticket purchases go toward funding Mental Health Greensboro’s free mental health services.

Concertgoers can either drive their car and tailgate in their allotted two spaces ($50 per car, up to four adults), or purchase a $12 general admission ticket and bring a lawn chair to enjoy the concert. Those under 16 are free.

Tickets are available on the Mental Health Greensboro website (www.mhag.org) and at Ticketmaster.com.
